The Danish gaming startup Playdead, an independent gaming studio based in Copenhagen, founded by Arnt Jensen and Dino Patti in 2006 have bought back the shares previously owned by investors Vækstfonden and CAT Science and FAHU. In 2011 the investors reportedly injected DKK 11m in the company. The buy-back terms have not been disclosed.

Play Dead had a huge hit with its first production, the game Limbo, which has been released both for Play Station 3 and Xbox 360.
